Tag der Deutschen Einheit – Day of German Unity
The third of October is the Day of German Unity, celebrated as German National Day. We celebrate in commemoration of the anniversary of the German reunification in 1990. This day celebrates a reunited Germany, reunited families, reunited culture and Berlin was once again designated as the capital of united Germany.
In recognition of this day, Brisbane’s iconic bridges, Story Bridge and Victoria Bridge, will show the colours of the German flag in a display of lights. Do you celebrate German Unity Day on this side of the world? Show us your photos, share your best pictures of the lit-up bridges on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #brisbanegermanweek #BGW19.
